Unseen Dreams

Today I set about to write and compose a piece that has resulted in this poem. That begun the day aimimng for a different route to which has resulted. Often when setting to compose the piece being worked on becomes something completely different to that which at first was desired.

Dark clouds gathering, heralding rain

Birds flying towards safety as a storm is on its way
